This junior hovercraft is not just a "gadget" it really does help you to get a better lawn, and here's bow. Any lawn expert will pinpoint the two most common rea- sons for unsatisfactory lawns. One is cutting too close: he- cause grass foliage and roots are starved and growth in- hibited giving weeds and couch grass a chance to spread. The other is loss of springiness where the con- stant passage of the rollers or wheels of a conventional mow- er presses and hardens the un- dersoil (causing a condition known as This means that Uie soil cracks easily in dry weather, the lawn loses its springiness, and the grass plants have a pretty hard job to survive. What's more, the lawn won't stand up to the wear and tear any good family lawn has to live with, and can't cope wilh a prolonged spell of dry sum- mer weather. Lawns are usually cropped too close of the bother of mowing on the principle that the closer you cut, the less often you'll have to get the mower out. But you'll never get a good lawn unless you cut lightly but frequently never shorter than 3lt" to Cutting at least twice a week in the growing season keeps the grass ncally "topped" and promotes strong, natural growth. Tliis is where the airborne m o w e r scores. The cutting height of the blade under the safely hood is easily adjustable. And it can't crop (ho grass jrutally close because it floats jusl Vi" above the ground follows tho contours of the awn. It has no wheels or roll- i ers to increase compaction. And, perhaps most important j of all, it cuts mowing time al- I most by half and makes the 'chore of mowing so easy that you can afford to mow twice a week. Wet, damp weather is no ob- slaelc, either because the re- turn upward airstreara of the airborne mower's air cushion action stands the wettest grass up to the blade for an even cut without damage to the lawn surface. This solves the annual spring problem of grass too wet to mow, but too long to leave another day. Both gas and electric hover mowers are available you may have to look around for a dealer, but the search is worth it. HOME OF THE WEEK This interesting back split de- sign can he built on a flat 51) foot lot, but would also suit a lot with a back slope and of course nn attractive view is al- ways an assel. With a rear slope n walk-out basement would be practical. Three bedrooms and bath- room on the upper level are. away from the daytime activ- ity rooms. All have ample clos- et space and a linen cupboard is provided close to where ita contents are needed. Basically designed to make your building dollar stretch as :ar as possible, the architect has omitted a fireplace and a powder room, and the lowest cvel is a heated crawl space under the dining-living area which can provide a large stor- age space. Yet all rooms aro arge for a house of this size. Utilities are in the area beneath he bedrooms with space left over for a recreation room or >ossible den and or extra bed- and washroom.

THE BEAUTY OF PHLOX T AM working at one of the Calgary nurseries during their peak season, and one of the perennials that seems to be quite popular is the phlox. If by chance you do not have any of this delightful flower in your garden, plant some and enjoy it either in informal groups or in separate beds. Besides being pleasing lo the eye, some aro very sweetly scented. If plant- ed close to the house, its scent wafts through the open door or windows, filling a room with the refreshing smell of summer. The blooming r.2iiod is from July to September. The new hybrid phlox have large, floriferous heads and the color range seems almost end- less. There are beautiful shades and tinLs of pink, red, orange, scarlet, lavender, blue, etc. as well as the ever lovely white. It will grow in either sun or semi-shade and requires a well- drained, fairly rich soil. If you have had difficulty in growing perennial phlox, perhaps tho reason may be that you failed to give it adequate amounts of moisture which is required for good growth. Mulching will help lo conserve moisture, especial- ly during hot, dry weather Flowers will last longer in par Hiram Walkers Special Old. Tiyalitde i..... Young, F.R.H.S. lial shade, but too much shade encourages mildew. Each plant should be given plenty of room, which also helps to discourage this condition. If it appears, treat wilh Karathane. In hot weather, really soak the ground at least once a week, but avoid wetting the foliage at night as' tin's contributes to mildew. This plant is very shallow rooted so when cultivating be careful not lo disturb or destroy the roots. Most plants from nurseries are In containers, so there is really no difficulty In trans- planting. Before setting In the ground, add some peat moss and well rotted manure (or other fertilizer) and work well into the earth. After plant ing, water well. If you are di- viding clumps, take pieces from the outside of the plant, dis- carding the old centre portion. Separate, plants about every fourth year, before the centre becomes hard and woody. Be- cause of the height of some of the plants and the large flower heads, a support of some kind is necessary. Phlox slays in bloom in the garden for a long period, however, as a cut flow- er for Ihe home, they are not Ion satisfactory as they quickly wilt and drop their petals. It is most important, as with all flowers, as soon as they have faded they should be cut off. Tlus will not always look bet- ter, but it wall extend the sea- son of bloom. Varieties do not always come true from seed, so if you want a particular color, etc. it is best to purchase one from a nursery. If your phlox is bothered with red spider mite, which causes the leaves to yellow, and also leaves a fine webbing, control with Kelthane, wetting the un- derside of Ihe leaves. Slugs may also be a nuisance when the young shoots first emerge in the spring. Slug bait will take care of these. For a splash of color In Ilia spring, Phlox subulata in rock- eries, perennial borders or sun- ny slopes and banks is ideal. It grows 3 lo 6 inches high and forms dense mats in colors of pink, lilac, rose, white and red. Even, the foliage is quite attrac- tive and remains decorative al] season. Blooming season is May and June. Mr. B. Can I fertilize m) grass and also treal it for weeds at the same time? Ans. Yes, there Is a prep- aration on the market called "Weed Feed" which does the job all in one operation. This has to be put on when the grasa is dry and not watered for at least 24 hours. Use accordlnf to directions on container. NOTE: All questions slionld be sent wilh self aildressed- slaniped, envelope lo Mrs. f. R. Young, .1020 Centre B. St. N.W.. Calgary 43.
